About
Doctorate of Musical Arts in Guitar Performance - Arizona State University, 2014

Guitar instructor and post-graduate study - University of Minnesota, 2011-2013

Master of Music in Guitar Performance - Arizona State University, 2011

Bachelor of Music in Guitar Performance - Arizona State University, 2009


I am a classical guitarist who performs for weddings, social events, company functions, parties, and any other event where acoustic/classical guitar is desired. I've been playing and performing for 15 years, and I have Doctor of Musical Arts degree from Arizona State in Classical Guitar Performance. For the past several years, I've also been a guitar instructor at the University of Minnesota (2011-2013) and Arizona State University (2014-Present)

I can provide all of my own high-end equipment and I'm more than happy to arrange music if special songs are requested. I play in the genres of Classical, Spanish, Tango, Contemporary, and various others, and I've performed on Good Morning Arizona and in several venues here in the U.S. as well as in Canada and Spain. In most cases, if you need to borrow a wireless microphone set-up for any reason, including wedding officiants or speeches, I'm happy to set that up. For more information, please visit my website.

I absolutely guarantee you'll be satisfied with my performance. I have a five-star rating on Gigmasters, the Knot, and Wedding Wire, and I've compiled my reviews on my website under "Testimonials."

Thanks for browsing my profile, and best wishes,
Brendan Lake

Brendan was a complete professional while attending the graduation ceremony at the Cardinal Stadium. I highly recommend him as he created a unique arrangement for our Choral accompaniment piece and it was fantastic. During the ceremony he took initiative and gave us a first pitch on his guitar prior to beginning the song. Thank you Brendan, for taking the time. I greatly appreciate your professionalism and efforts into making this a successful experience.

He was very professional and arrived early to set up. He was self sufficient and unobtrusive. He seemed to enjoy himself although our guests basically ignored him. He provided a nice atmosphere for our party.
